I usually have a Trashtastic Tuesday post on Tuesdays. But not today, because I cannot wait another day to do a full reveal on my faux painted subway tile backsplash! I will be back later in the week with a Trashtastic post for you, I promise! But for now, let us bask in the awesomeness that is my kitchen backsplash. I have revealed little peaks of my progress here and here. And yesterday I revealed my painted black door that is also in my kitchen. I painted these cabinets myself, which was another huge job. I finished them in November. So now that my backsplash is complete, I am one step closer to calling this room done! Let me tell you, this has been a long process. Long and tedious. But I am celebrating today because I can finally say it is done! And I am in love with it! Madly, deeply in love! I will come back with a full tutorial for you as soon as I have time to put one together, but for today, I am just going to show you the pictures! Enjoy!
Update: The tutorial for this backsplash is now posted on my blog if You would like to know how I did this!
Update- 2/6/19- We have since made over this kitchen, but we kept the faux subway tile backsplash, and it has held up perfectly! Here is a sneek peak!
